Jason Aldean took home the top prize – and cleaned house – at Monday's American Country Awards in Las Vegas.
"This is getting ridiculous," he said upon winning artist of the year, just one of the six awards he took home.
Carrie Underwood and Thompson Square each took home three awards, but Toby Keith may have stolen the evening, winning artist of the decade and performing his insanely quirky and catchy song "Red Solo Cup."
"Hell, anybody can have a good decade, huh?" he said. "I've had a great decade and I hope I have another one."
